So we played finals with 4 players and won 2 games against ether and navy then got shafted the third game and if you were there you knew what happened and i dont wanna get into it.
Then after started playing really good in teh finals Rick, who left our player at the front gate to wait till GPL was over, went and picked him up and brought him back simply saying ohh your team is doing very well you should go watch. How the **** do you have the nerve to do that. I know that its your property but dont be a dick and kick people out for **** you think you hear over 75 feet away. Then dont ahve the nerve to curse out the players at your field when we simply tried to talk. thats all.
Well it amazing Kyle how the story changes. First off in our attempt to grow the sport along with every other league that cares about the sport we have implimented the no cursing rule several years ago. But I am sure you are one of those people who know all the rules, but never bothered to look at them. Then all the captains were told this as well at the captains meeting because we had some huge, non-paintball, outside sponsor looking to invest in the sport for the teams, but I am sure you probably were not paying attention at the meeting either. Then when you player was asked to watch his mouth, said ok, then did it again, I guess 3 warnings was not enough.
Then myself, Cyndi, Eric Holland and Rick Guyer even spoke to you team and told you how to handle the situation that would have settled the issue and would have gotten you player to come back and play. BUT, once again your teams did not listen at all. I personally witness 2 players go back up to Rick and get in his face. We told you what to do, but I guess you were either too stuburn or just plain stupid to listen.
Your player was asked to leave after 3 warnings. Not sure what you meant by huge mis-hearing or understanding since the player when I personally went with Rick out to talk to the player and the player apoligized many, many times and admitted he did it and he was wrong. Also after the player apoligized to Rick, he was told that it goes no farther, he can not play the rest of the day, but the issue is over and forgotten. Then Rick told him the team was doing good and beat Ether with 4 as he brought the player back to the field to watch the games.
Best of sucess to you and your team elsewhere.
